When Disaster Strikes – Don’t Worry About Clean Water
First the water main break. Now the Coronavirus. Not to mention an increase in frequency of floods during the hurricane season. When there is a catastrophe of any sort, human instinct is to go into survival mode, as evidenced by the last few days. We have all seen the pictures of empty grocery store shelves, and the essentials that people are stockpiling are water and toilet paper.
But it’s not just about the catastrophes. Water is a basic human need. And fortunately we live in a place where we can turn on our taps and water flows out. However, even though the water that comes into our homes has been treated, it is possible that due to aging infrastructure or other reasons, our drinking water can become contaminated with chemicals, waste, metals, or dissolved solids. Not to mention that water quality changes over time and varies from place to place. So how can you ensure that you have safe, clean water all the time?
The best place to start is to get a free water analysis because Texas has some of the hardest water in the United States, which leads to hard water stains, soapy residue, increased strain on appliances and costs associated with washing clothes or dish detergents. Add that to the aging infrastructure, as illustrated by the burst water main near Clinton Drive at the end of last month, and it’s time to think of getting a water softening and filtration system for your house. At Houston Water Solutions, we use the Pentair Pro Elite system that softens and cleans water and gives you fresh water at every tap.
With water conditioning, you get soft water that is better for your skin, your hair, your clothes, and your dishes. There’s no filmy residue left behind on your skin. No hard water stains on your dishes, and no faded or discolored clothes. And with water filtration you get clean, drinkable water free from any pollutants and heavy metals, at every tap. So no matter if there is a burst pipe, or a flooding disaster, or a pandemic, you can rest assured that you have clean, soft, water at every tap in every drop.
